More About This Textbook

Overview

Current Ornithology publishes authoritative, up-to-date, scholarly reviews of topics selected from the full range of current research in avian biology. Topics cover the spectrum from the molecular level of organization to population biology and community ecology. The series seeks especially to review 1) fields in which abundant recent literature will benefit from synthesis and organization, 2) newly emerging fields that are gaining recognition as the result of recent discoveries or shifts in perspective, and 3) fields in which students of vertebrates may benefit from comparisons of birds with other classes. All chapters are invited, and authors are chosen for their leadership in the subjects under review.

Devoted exclusively to extensive reviews and syntheses of topics pertaining to all aspects of the biology of birds. Six contributions cover birds' avoidance of chemical irritants; mechanisms underlying the timing of avian reproduction; the evolution of passerine song repertoires; the state of knowledge of dominance in birds; the energetics of passerines that spend nonbreeding season in potentially hostile environments; and recent advances in the understanding of the different motor correlates of vocal diversity in oscine songbirds.
